James Bond Retrospective: Thunderball (1965)

31 December 2011 12:04 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As James Bond prepares for his 23rd official outing in Skyfall and to mark the 50th Anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time I have been tasked to take a retrospective look at the films that turned author Ian Fleming’s creation into one of the most recognised and iconic characters in film history.

Ian Fleming died just one month before the release of the third James Bond film, Goldfinger in August 1964. Even though both Dr. No and From Russia With Love had been successful and well received it was not until Goldfinger that James Bond truly became a worldwide phenomenon and it is a tragedy that Fleming never lived to see the full impact his creation had on popular culture.

The story of the fourth James Bond film, Thunderball, is a complicated one that pre-dates the formation of Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman »

Is Daniel Craig About To Be Offered Deal For Another Five Bond Movies?

18 December 2011 6:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With his new film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo set to hit UK cinemas on Boxing Day, Daniel Craig is very prominent on the publicity trail, while almost simulataneously shooting the next James Bond adventure, Skyfall. We’ve seen ‘Dragon Tattoo,’ and it’s bloody aces (full review coming soon).

So, here’s the Craig-related news. In an interview with People magazine, 007 producer Michael G. Wilson has been quoted as saying that he really, really wants Craig to sign up for a role in the 007 fanchise, for another Five movies! That would take his total haul to seven pictures in the franchise and making him the longest serving Bond ever, beating off Roger Moore by one movie.

“Daniel’s been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a ­terrific man. The fans love him and I don’t think there’s a better actor to play the part.” Wilson said. »

Mission: Impossible - Extreme Trilogy Collection - Blu-ray Review

14 December 2011 5:10 PM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Timed for Tom Cruise.s return to the big screen as Imf agent Ethan Hunt, the first three Mission Impossible film have been collected on Blu-ray as an Extreme Trilogy Collection. All three films are still entertaining, but the set is hardly worth the purchase if you own the films in one of the other collections already released. Based on the hit television series, the three Mission Impossible films are a near perfect combination of action and suspense. They also manage to have the cool spy ingredients fans have expected from the genre since a certain British agent was brought to the screen in his first tangle with Dr. No. While keeping the films grounded in a form »

James Bond Retrospective: Goldfinger (1964)

12 December 2011 11:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As James Bond prepares for his 23rd official outing in Skyfall and to mark next year’s 50th Anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time I have been tasked to take a retrospective look at the films that turned author Ian Fleming’s creation into one of the most recognised and iconic characters in film history.

When the second James Bond film From Russia With Love managed to top the box-office receipts of Dr. No, producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman knew they had struck gold with the character. Looking to expand the appeal of the next film to a more worldwide audience, in particular the American market, they chose Fleming’s seventh Bond novel Goldfinger as the third film in their series. With much of the story taking place in the American states of Kentucky and Florida as well as Switzerland and the »

James Bond Retrospective: From Russia With Love (1963)

30 November 2011 12:28 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As James Bond prepares for his 23rd official outing in Skyfall and to mark next year’s 50th Anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time I have been tasked to take a retrospective look at the films that turned author Ian Fleming’s creation into one of the most recognised and iconic characters in film history.

Following the huge success of the first James Bond film Dr. No, producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman were keen to start production on a follow-up. With United Artists offering the pair $2 million, double the budget of Dr. No, to quickly get a sequel in the works Broccoli and Saltzman were left to decide which of Fleming’s novels to adapt next.

In an interview with Life magazine the then Us President John F. Kennedy had mentioned the Bond novel From Russia With Love in a list of his top ten favourite books. »

Ben Whishaw To Play Q in New James Bond Film, 'Skyfall'

25 November 2011 9:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It would appear Daniel Craig's third stint as James Bond in what has been officially titled Skyfall will bring more than one familiar franchise character back into the fold. Naomie Harris is already confirmed to play Miss Moneypenny, a character that is first known as a field agent named Eve, and now previously reported cast member Ben Whishaw has been confirmed as gadget maestro Q. Outside of a brief appearance in 1962's Dr. No under his real name Major Boothroyd, Q was first featured in the Bond franchise by Desmond Llewelyn in 1963's From Russia with Love all the way through The World Is Not Enough. After Llewelyn passed away in 1999, the character was portrayed by John Cleese in Die Another Day. Q is the head of Branch Q, the fictional armory division of MI6 and was not seen in Casino Royale or Quantum of Solace, both of which »

Ben Whishaw Will Supply Gadgets To James Bond As Q in Skyfall!

25 November 2011 9:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the end Naomie Harris isn’t bringing M’s secretary Miss. Moneypenny back to the James Bond franchise (at the press conference she revealed she was playing a field agent instead) but there is at least one iconic character due to return in Skyfall. The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that Ben Whishaw will be playing the godfather of gadgets and dry wit, Q.

Whishaw was cast in the movie some months ago and we did wonder whether he might just be eccentric enough to play Q but were put off by the fact he’s only 31 years of age. Whilst it will be a little strange to see someone younger than Daniel Craig playing Q, everyone was young once I suppose and we are quite excited about the fresh casting. There’s no reason why he now can’t go on and play the character for decades really.

Oscar winning screenwriter John Logan has spoken to Comingsoon.net on working with Sam Mendes on Skyfall. Logan is best known for his work on The Gladiator and The Aviator, with his collaborators a whose who of Hollywood royalty. "I think what's great about one thing Sam and I share is we have the language of theater, because that's where we grew up, but we're also filmmakers. I would like to think those two things inform all of our work, so back and forth. Purvis and Wade who wrote the last several had worked with Sam very closely and written a fantastic, fantastic script. I came into that with Sam in January, so I've been on for almost a year now, as a matter of fact. It's great. It's so thrilling to work on because like everyone, I grew up on Bond.

By Lee Pfeiffer

Syd Cain, the respected art director and production designer, has died at age 93. Syd's death is a personal loss to many of us at Cinema Retro who considered him a friend. His remarkable career included a long association with the James Bond films. He began on the very first film, Dr. No, in 1962 as art director, working with the legendary production designer Ken Adam. When Adam wasn't available for the second film, From Russia With Love, Syd took over for the art direction and production design duties. Syd was billed as the production designer for the 1969 Bond classic On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1969, playing a crucial role in »

James Bond Retrospective: Dr. No (1962)

16 November 2011 1:24 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

As James Bond prepares for his 23rd official outing in Skyfall and to mark next year’s 50th Anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time I have been tasked to take a retrospective look at the films that turned author Ian Fleming’s creation into one of the most recognised and iconic fictional characters in film history.

Back in 1961 nobody could have foreseen the success and longevity that James Bond would go on to enjoy in the years that followed. At the time, film producer Albert R. Broccoli, who was reeling from being declared bankrupt after the box-office failure of his most recent picture The Trails of Oscar Wilde, was on the lookout for an idea for his next project. When asked by his wife Dana what he really wanted to do, he replied “I have always wanted to film the Ian Fleming James Bond »

The Greatest James Bond Moments…Ever!

9 November 2011 2:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s official, Bond 23 is called Skyfall and filming is already underway for a release in cinemas next October (November in the U.S.) on the 50th anniversary of the film franchise. So as we all start to get hyped up with the series again (yes, a year to go is Not too early to get excited!), it couldn’t be a better time to chart the greatest moments from the Bond films so far…

The James Bond series has been a staple of the cinema-going population’s calendar for the past 49 years! Bond has become a character so ingrained within popular culture that there’s barely a human being alive in the world who doesn’t know who he is. He gets the most beautiful women, drives the best cars and travels to the most exotic corners of the globe. Men want to be him; women want to »

‘Skyfall’ First Image & Casting Announcements; Ralph Fiennes as Blofeld?

8 November 2011 6:48 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In spite of being the third film in Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond, Skyfall has already received an unusually large amount of fanfare and media attention (especially considering it’s a year away from release).

Perhaps that’s due to the fact that it’s the 50th anniversary of the very first Ion Bond, Dr. No?

Now, days after the official announcement, we have additional casting announcements, the very first set image, and hints from co-star Ralph Fiennes that he’ll be playing either “Blofeld” or someone Blofeld-esque.

First, check out the first official image from the set of Skyfall (via Skyfall’s official twitter account):

It’s incredibly reminiscent of the filthy bathroom from the black-and-white beginning of Casino Royale, wherein James Bond killed ...

I couldn't begin to tell you why I do the things I do but rather than make you watch all 28 minutes of the Bond 23 conference, I'm watching it for you; I'm a giver.

007 by way of 11/03

50th Anniversaries on their way!

0:01 As the press conference begins we're reminded that it's exactly 50 years ago today Sean Connery was officially announced to play James Bond in Dr. No (1962). Fun, trivia right?

1:15 The confirmation of the worst kept secret in London: the title is "Skyfall"... They don't mention this but that make Skyfall the second shortest Bond title ever (after Dr. No). The longest title is On Her Majesty's Secret Service. #uselesstrivia

2:02 Edited To Remove Completely Garbled Nonsensical Sentence Which Is What You Get When You Live Blog. The film will take place in London, Shanghai, Istanbul, and has a heavy Scottish component.

James Bond's "Skyfall" Press Conference- Report #2

50 Years to the day Sean Connery was announced to play the character of James Bond in Eon Productions' Dr. No, Sony held a press conference today to officially announce the start of production on the 23rd film in the series of OO7 big-screen adventures.

Held in the ballroom of The Corinthia Hotel, central London, the event kicked off at 11:45am with the James Bond theme being played (we hope this means a return on-screen too, as it was sadly lacking from the first two Daniel Craig Bond films) as producer Michael G. Wilson walked on stage to announce the 23rd film in the series is to be titled SkyFall. Joining him on stage, director Sam Mendes confirmed the cast:Craig, Dame Judi Dench, »

Daniel Craig Back in Newly Titled Bond Film: ‘Skyfall’

3 November 2011 10:13 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, The Adventures of Tintin, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is ready to put on the tuxedo (and take it off) for the 23rd James Bond film that has a new title, “Skyfall“. While it’s no great surprise that Craig is back as Bond, anticipation for the latest installment for 007 will grow as director Sam Mendes (American Beauty) made the official announcement in a London press conference Thursday and also said that shooting for Skyfall will begin on location Monday in the British capital at Pinewood Studios and will later move to Istanbul, Turkey Shanghai, China, and Scotland. Mendes was tight-lipped on story specifics and character names to keep wild speculation to a minimum. Mendes did add that if the excitement remains as high after filming as it is now, then he would return to direct another Bond film. Today marks the 50th anniversary of »

Skyfall Officially Bond 23 Title

3 November 2011 4:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Out in central London just moments ago at the jam packed Corinthia Hotel official press conference, Eon Productions and Sony Pictures have just announced that James Bond will be returning in Skyfall which director Sam Mendes says has an ‘emotional meaning’ to the film.

Just as we told you last month! You heard it here first!

Here’s the official synopsis of the film;

“Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.”

The press conference took place on the 50th anniversary of the press conference that revealed Sean Connery as 007 for the first Ian Fleming adaptation, Dr. No.

Skyfall will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as 007 for the third time in the movie to be directed by Mendes, the helmer of the prestige pictures American Beauty, »

James Bond 23 With Albert Finney?

31 October 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

James Bond 23 With Albert Finney?

The cast for James Bond 23, which already includes some serious heavy hitters, has added yet another big name to the latest adventure in the Bond franchise, as 5-time Oscar-nominee Albert Finney gets his spy game on again.

Finney, who was recently seen in The Bourne Legacy as Dr. Albert Hirsch and will reprise his role in The Bourne Ultimatum, has signed on with the Sam Mendes-directed Bond 23 in a “reasonably big role.” How big? According to IndieWire, Finney will play none other than the boss of M (Judi Dench).

The addition of Finney to Daniel Craig’s latest adventure as the suave secret agent probably makes this one of the most high-profile casts that any Bond film has ever had before, with Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes already signed on as a couple of Bond baddies. Of course, big names don »
